    Spartan Soccer Takes Shelter Thanks to Community Effort

    UNADILLA/OTEGO Several sectors of the Unatego community came together recently to fund, construct and deliver two brand-new 3,000-pound wooden soc-cer dugouts for the benefi t of Spartan and visiting male and female soccer players. The project, conceptualized by members of the Unatego Spartan Booster Club more than two years ago, came to fruition this fall.

    President of the Unatego Spartan Booster Club Kather-ine Newman explained: The Booster Club approached the (Unadilla Community Foun-

    dation) for a grant about two years ago specifi cally for soccer shelters at the high school. From there, she said, because of club members fi rst-hand knowledge of the superior work done through the BOCES Building Trades class, the group initiated a collaboration with Matthew White, Building Trades in-structor at the Chenango cam-pus, and his students, two of which happened to be Unat-ego Spartan soccer players. Not long after that, said New-man, the funding was granted.

    The funding came through in May (of last year) and BO-CES came on at the end of the school year, said Newman, adding, Matt White assured

    us he would make it the fi rst project of the new school year. Remembering the long but worthy process, Newman noted, Everything just fell into place.

    Booster Club member and past secretary Missy Ko-menda said the project was a priority because, before now, Spartan and visiting soccer players had no option for shel-ter from inclement weather. And, that two current players, seniors Noah Blake and Josh-ua Treffeisen, could be a part of building the structures, said Komenda, made the end result that much more meaningful.

    This was something the Booster Club wanted to do be-cause we work all year to do

    FRANKLIN/SIDNEY CENTER Since 2003, a growing number of Sunni Muslims practicing the tradi-tional Nakshibendi Sufi way have made 1663 Wheat Hill Road, Sidney Center their dergah: a place of gathering, a spiritual center of worship,

    somewhere to cultivate simple living practices such as farm-ing and, above all, a welcom-ing community. The Osmanli Dergahi was founded by the late Sheykh Abdul Kerim el-Kirbrisi el-Rabbani; he passed in 2012.

    Today, dergah members have invested spiritually and economically in the Delaware and Otesgo county-area, es-

    tablishing several businesses and many positive relation-ships therein.

    On Monday, Oct. 2 at The Tulip and the Rose Caf in Franklin, an example of one such business, dergah mem-bers welcomed a broad cross section of area people to the groups inaugural meet and greet.

    BAINBRIDGE The Bainbridge Chamber of Com-merce recently announced winners of its annual Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year awards, naming June White and Snips & Snails, owned by Lori McGraw, as this years honorees.

    Lori McGraw, a Bainbridge native, said she launched Snips & Snails Childrens Consignment on a whim six years ago. Not knowing how

    it would go, McGraw began selling childrens clothing in a small space located at 28 N. Main St. in downtown Bain-bridge as a trial run. After a week of being open, McGraw said, she knew she was on to something.

    Months later, McGraw said, she quickly renovated a larger storefront located in the same building and expanded into non-clothing items. The business took off and over the years, McGraw has hired

    employees, built her customer base and realized she was out of room once more.

    In 2014, an addition was added to create a multi-level store. After that most recent expansion, McGraw not only sells gently used childrens items, but clothing for all ages, children and adults.

    I have big plans coming for Snips & Snails, noted McGraw, adding, Hopefully, another expansion, as we are constantly growing every
